5 Ways to Multitask this Finals Week

I am sorry to be the one who has to say it out loud, but finals week has arrived. Finals week often feels like one giant blur because we don’t sleep, we don’t eat, and we skip the gym. With the amount of studying we have, it often feels as if there is no time to do anything else. But here are 5 ways to multitask this finals week and do other things while you study:

  1. Study while you are at the gym: I actually enjoy reading a book while on the bicycle or memorizing my notes in between squats.

  2. Study during the commercials of your favorite shows: One of the most annoying things about watching shows online is that they have endless commercials. But take advantage of those commercial breaks and use them to quiz yourself with flashcards.

  3. Download the Quizlet app on your iPhone and study whenever you find yourself waiting around: The Quizlet app lets you make flashcards and then turns those terms into study games. When you're waiting in lines at the dining halls or the grocery store, waiting outside your apartment for friends, or walking to class, whip out the app and quiz yourself.

  4. Study when you eat: One of my favorite things to do is to study in the dining halls. Instead of using your mealtimes to space out or socialize, try studying.

  5. Study in the shower: When you're in the shower, review your notes in your head. I know it sounds funny, but it can be a good time to reflect on what areas you need to focus on more.
